  • 19/05/2021

The Blackcaps will contest a Chappell-Hadlee Trophy series in Australia early next year.

Australia wrested the trans-Tasman trophy away from the Kiwis with a 1-0 win in a 2020 series shortened by COVID-19 border closures in both countries.

New Zealand and Australia will battle for the silverware over three one-day matches from January 30-February 5 in Perth, Hobart and Sydney.

A one-off T20 match is scheduled for February 8 at Canberra’s Manuka Oval, towards the end of a jam-packed Australian schedule with a five-test Ashes series against England, a one-off test against Afghanistan and a T20 series against Sri Lanka.

New Zealand's summer of cricket kicks off in December, with a two-test, three ODI tour by Bangladesh, before the Netherlands visit of three ODIs.

South Africa will play the Blackcaps through February and March, with two tests and three T20s scheduled.

India completes the home programme for New Zealand, with three ODIs at the end of March.
